The 2011-12 Volvo Ocean Race will begin in October, with teams now beginning to complete their new boats. Making a flashy splash in the 2008-9 VOR was PUMA Ocean Racing, sporting imaginative graphics to claim second overall. Their latest ride will be emerging soon from New England Boatworks for final prep before they take it across the Atlantic for the race start in Alicante, Spain.
Lisa Ann Wagenbach was a big fan of the PUMA team from the last race, so much so that she downloaded 13 of their videos (50 minutes of footage) from YouTube and put her spin on the team and the crew's personality to create a 1:39 video.
Comments Lisa, "As a non-sailing fan, who has read Scuttlebutt religiously since 2007, I can attest that in order to keep me interested in the sport of sailing when I have never been at the helm, you have to grab my attention with 'cool' visuals, give me a reason to connect with the team (personalities, drama, style), and be able to tell me a story in 3-minutes or less."
